4.0 out of 5 stars A different view of South America., 24 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A thoroughly enjoyable brief trip through South America,possibly too brief and bereft of information.But,it is not a travel guide so why complain?Well.it made you want to go there so you wanted more information.Nevertheless,would recommend to anyone with a yearn to "do" South America.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable romp, 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not an area you can usually read about in this way so enjoyable and interesting.Tendency to be a bit flippant at times but overall a good romp.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable romp through Africa., 3 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An enjoyable read if a bit disjointed at times.Some escapades left unanswered questions and there is no clear basis given as to how and why certain countries were chosen.Never the less an interesting jaunt.

3.0 out of 5 stars More a journal than a book, 24 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although I enjoyed the read it was a bit disjointed and there were times you seemed to be left in a vacuum.Also the lack of a link between the stories gave the impression you were reading a diary.You certainly were not ever concerned as to what happened next.A bit more thought into the way it was written and linking events as well as more detail on the locality and residents would have made it a more enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent sequel, 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Born Singing (Kindle Edition)
I was not sure if this book could be as enjoyable as Innocent in Africa but it was.My only criticism was the repeating of some of the passages from this book.It Was good to find out what happened to all the characters and again a thoroughly enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable, 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating account of life in the third world.Very thought provoking highlighting the inequalities in the world in the 1990s that persist today.Was it a brave decision to go or stupid? Either way all works out for the better with benefits all round.I was surprised how much I enjoyed the book and at times found it difficult to put down A sign of a well written book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unnecessary details., 9 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An enjoyable read spoiled by unnecessary personal details. Information totally not required for such a book which should be able to be read by all age groups.

4.0 out of 5 stars Only just, 14 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An enjoyable read but a bit of a journal rather than a narrative.Strangely lacking in humour and more about French red tape and the problems that brought.Not sure in the end whether there was any regret.

5.0 out of 5 stars All right in the end., 20 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good read but almost an expanded diary journal which made it feel a permanent arduous trial which turned out all right in the end.Indicates that knowing the language is essential.I think it might make some think twice about following their lead.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strangely annoying., 16 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nowhere Like Home (Kindle Edition)
Initially enjoyed but then a feeling of irritation and annoyance.Maybe the arrogant style of writing together with the times of drinking to oblivion.The first few chapters were interesting but then things seemed to go stale and boring.All in all , a big disappointment.
